Stephen Hunter has a new book out, The Third Bullet, it involves the JFK killing. I haven't read it yet but I think Bob Lee Swagger is in it.
All he need do is read Bill O'Reilly's new book, Killing Kennedy.Yessir, it is a Bob Lee Swagger novel. A little different from the rest. Bob is older and slower (aren't we all?) but is drawn into a re-investigation of the JFK assassination.
Only about 100 pages in, but it's got me hooked...
Here it is:what is the title of the A-1 book? I have a very good friend who flew two tours in one
No it's another collaboration. The last two were downright decent books, fun to read; lots of action. The story telling is not up to Clancy's standards and some of the technical stuff is a little off here and there; but never more than just a very minor annoyance. They're decent stories, well written, and enjoyable.Charlie, is "Threat Vector" written by Clancy? I know it sounds like a silly question, but it seems that the last few years most of his novels are "collaborations", like he maybe plots it out but someone else actually writes it.
The new books have a LOT of Ding and Clark, so you can imagine that's where the action comes from. There's also Jack Ryan Jr. who's coming into his own, and partnering up with Clark and Chavez...youd think his dad would have him keep better company; trouble follows those two and seems to rub off onto JR on a regular basis. And in the end, that's why we read those books, we like to mentally check out of the real world and enjoy a good adventure.Thanks, Kevin. I enjoyed Clancy's early works, and really liked the novels spotlighting John Clark (Hey, his real name is John Terrence Kelly!!)
and Ding Chavez.
Guess I need to check out Amazon and pick up where I left off.
